Route Map for the ISABA

The bus takes about 15 minutes to get from downtown Hachinohe to the Sunday Morning Market

● Yanagi Machi  Years ago the closest stop to the morning market was the Minato Yamate Street Stop. Vendors began to set up stall here as well for customers making their way to the market, and even now around 50 stalls set up every week. A small market used by mostly locals, stop by this market on the way to the main morning market to enjoy the more local atmosphere.

●Downtown: The ISABA bus stops at 6 stops in the downtown, or chushingai, area of Hachinohe: Jusan-nichi-machi, Juroku-nichi-machi, Nujuhachi-nichi-machi, and Hachinohe Chuchingai taminaru 1,2,4 &5. The downtown area of Hachinohe is home to many of the city’s hotels as well as dining and entertainment establishments making it a convenient area for visitors. It is a ten-minute walk from the nearest train station (Hon-Hachinohe Station).

Note: Several of the streets running through downtown are one-way, making the leaving and returning bus stops for the morning market different.
